Defend the crown and vote Lees-McRae as the “Top Adventure College”

Following a successful battle to the very end during Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine’s “Top Adventure College” tournament last year, Lees-McRae will again go head-to-head with colleges across the Southeast to prove our outdoor programming is some of the best in the nation.

The tournament will begin Monday, Feb. 25 and last until Friday, March 30. During that time, Lees-McRae will compete against colleges in a 32-school bracket. Voters can submit their choice once every 24 hours. Lees-McRae will face Brevard College until the first round of voting is over Monday, March 4 at 10 a.m.

The second round, including 16 schools, spans the duration of March 4 until March 11. The third round, named “the elite eight”, will have schools battle it out from March 11 until March 18. The second-to-last round will have the “final four” going head-to-head from March 18 until March 25 before entering the final championship March 25 until March 30.

During the 2018 tournament, Lees-McRae became the first college with an undergraduate enrollment fewer than 5,000 students to claim the title of “Top Adventure College.” After taking the title of best “small school” in the final four round, Lees-McRae found itself against Liberty University in the final championship.
